Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.


Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail.

Now patients can have beautiful, newly aligned, straight teeth in as few as two visits. Veneers can make a dream smile come to life, an amazing smile makeover.


In the experienced hands of our cosmetic salinas-dental-veneersdentists, these thin,
natural-looking porcelain shells cover existing teeth—to close gaps, to change color, to lengthen
and to properly align teeth. It can be almost like instant orthodontics!



Our custom porcelain veneers—made with the
finest new, advanced-grade, porcelains—create the opalescence, brightness and natural shape that improve a smile naturally, while lasting for many years.




With our in-office Zoom whitening system, many patients first lighten their teeth, and then the dental veneers are matched to the lighter color of thenewly brightened teeth.

How the Porcelain Veneers Process works

Two or more appointments are needed to restore teeth with beautiful porcelain veneers. At the first appointment, the doctor shapes and slightly roughens the surface of the teeth. Then the doctor takes impressions to create exact working models of the mouth.

The new porcelain veneers are artistically crafted on these models to perfectly fit the teeth that are prepared for the veneers.
On the day of the first appointment, the patient leaves the office wearing highly specialized temporary porcelain veneers—which already look better than the original teeth! The temporaries allow the doctor and patient to plan the appearance of the permanent veneers, since the temporaries have much the same look as the permanent porcelain veneers.
At the next appointment, the doctor cleans and polishes the prepared teeth.
The doctor places the permanent veneers and applies a special adhesive to permanently bond the porcelain veneers to the teeth. A gentle, high-intensity light hardens the adhesive.
